Zacks reiterated its neutral rating on shares of JDS Uniphase Co. (JDSU). They
have a $12.00 price target on the stock. Zacks' analyst wrote, "JDS Uniphase
posted mixed financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Although
the revenue fell below the Zacks Consensus Estimate, net income topped the same.
The newly launched products accounted for 57% of its total revenue in core
network market. However, overall book-to-bill ratio remains less than 1.0
throughout the quarter. We remain concerned regarding delay in carrier order due
to a volatile global macro-economy. Consolidation trend in the optical gear
manufacturing industry as well as in the telecom carrier industry may act as a
spoiler for the optical component suppliers, such as JDS Uniphase. Nevertheless,
its newly launched differentiated products, which are gaining encouraging market
traction coupled with acquisitions of Dyaptive and GenComm may become long-term
positives for the company. We believe JDS Uniphase is currently fairly valued
and thus reaffirm our Neutral recommendation. "
